    You sure it wasn't the "The Bible - God's Word or Mans?" book you looked at?

    I'm pretty sure I never studied the Mankind book.

    I am pretty sure it was never studied. One brother commented to me that the society probably thought it wise for the brothers not to dwell too much on what others believe. The book is okay for the ministry and bringing others in, but might actually harm the brothers if they study it in depth. The ironic thing is that the brother did not say this to me in a disapproving tone. Rather he thought it was prudent the society should "protect" us in this way. It just shows you the spirit of utter dependence that the Witness mindset breeds, especially among thoughtful Witnesses. It leads to all sorts of distortions of the mind.

    Could it have been different in Spanish?

    I remember it!

    Maybe I just read it.

    I could be losing it.

    No that book was never studied at the BS. I was actually looking forward to studying that one.

    According to the CDROM the mankind's book came out in 1990. The book study schedule was

    April 89 Rev Book

    June 90 Trinity Brochure

    Sept 90 The Bible - God's word or man's book

    Feb 91 Blood brochure

    March 91 Rev book (again)

    Oct 92 Greatest Man book

    Nov 93 Family life book

    May 94 Happiness - how to find it.

    Jan 95 Rev book (again!!!!)

    April 96 Knowledge book

    I really thought we had studied the mankind's search book, guess the old memory's playing tricks.

    IT HAS NEVER - repaet NEVER been studied in the Bookgroup. If you still do not believe me , I will post al lKMs on line. If you recall sudy schedules of publications are always published in the Kingdom Ministry. I have a dam good memory and was an elder at the time - this has never been studied. My copy would be marked - it is not.
